A Halloween Chili Buffet for Yum Food & Fun For Kids Magazine



Who says Halloween is all about the sweet stuff?! I'm not too keen on candy myself (I know, shock horror!), so I was thrilled to be able to style something different for Halloween this year - A Chilling Chili Halloween Buffet!

I love working with YUM Food and Fun for Kids Magazine, and my Halloween Chili Bar is now in their October Issue - The article is 8 pages long with easy ideas and recipes on re-creating this chili bar for Halloween!
